I would trust your doctor and/or obs/gyno.
I experienced 4 miscarriages in a just over 1 year period, with each pregnancy only having 1 month break inbetween them. It took until the 3rd miscarriage for my private Obs to order DH and I to have several tests to rule out chromosomal abnormalities and other factors. It turned out that I had a clotting disorder and was on asprin for the duration of my pregnancy.
With the amount of time in between the two miscarriages, it is doubtful that the doctor would be going into this amount of testing as yet.
I am so sorry for your losses. It is truly heartbreaking, and I hope that your doctor is able to help you fulfill your dream of a family.

I am sorry for your experience of miscarriage.
I agree with Snuffster. I'm surprised that your doctor is willing to order a chromosomal analysis on the products of concept after only two losses, but it is the most appropriate next test. The other tests for recurrent miscarriage usually involve looking at clotting disorders.
Unfortunately, in most cases the cause of miscarriage is unknown. In my case, even with a history of problems associated with clotting and recurrent miscarriage, my miscarriage was deemed to most likely be bad luck. Even if the cause had been put down to clotting problems, there are very few treatments, and those have their own side effects.
In cases of chromosomal problems, with the exception of IVF with PGD (only suitable for some chromosomal disorders), there is not much to be done either.
A pregnancy in 2008 followed by one in 2013 is a fairly signficant gap. I would ask my doctor in that situation about other fertility problems, unless of course you had other successful pregnancies in that time.
